    Default George Hill Questionable with a sore hip

    http://blogs.pacers.com/2013/11/01/h...sore-left-hip/

    Pacers point guard George Hill didn’t practice on Friday and he’s listed as day-to-day for Saturday’s game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Hill is dealing with a sore left hip, which he suffered in the team’s 95-90 win in New Orleans on Wednesday.

    At one point late in the third quarter of that game, Hill went back to the locker room for evaluation. He then returned to the court, started the fourth quarter and managed through the injury to play the final 12 minutes. His 3-pointer as the shot-clock expired with 31.1 seconds left gave the Pacers a four-point lead and helped seal the win.

    Is the injury troublesome enough to keep him out of just their third game of the year?

    “I don’t think so,” head coach Frank Vogel replied and then repeated, “He does have a sore left hip and he’s day-to-day.”
    Hill said after practice that he’s simply taking it easy.

    “It’s like my 16th year,” Hill joked. “Coach just said, ‘You’re a ’95 Mercedes right now. We have to save your miles.’ I have 300,000 miles on my car so it was in the shop today [for a] fuel check, oil check, things like that.”

    If Hill plays, he’ll have to deal with another elite point guard in Kyrie Irving.

    “In this situation, every night is a tough night for me,” he said. “With the point guards we have in this league, there’s no days off. The first night I had Jameer [Nelson]. Second night you go with Jrue Holiday and then the third night you got Kyrie Irving. All of them are tremendous.

    “[They're] some of the premier point guards in the NBA but that’s what it is, that’s my job and just try to do the best I can to make it hard for them.”

    Should Hill have to sit out, Vogel said C.J. Watson will start at point guard and on Irving.
    Hill seems to have a hip or shoulder injury every year. I'm worried about his durability but I'm less worried than I was last year when all we had was two inexperienced and limited players backing him up.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.

    Michael Pina, Red94: "There are so many different ways the Pacers can beat you. They have an All-Star scoring threat, imposing figures on the front line, steady point guard play, and most importantly, a defense that'll choke the life out of just about every offense that crosses its path."

    HE does seem to always have a nagging injury.

    I'm glad my initial reaction was to laugh. I hope this stays a joke.

    Speaking of joking, what did you think of GHill comparing himself to an old 95 Mercedes with over 300,000 miles? He's not that old. He just has hip and shoulder problems and he's had those for the past 3-4 years (even in San Antonio) when he was younger and had less miles on his odometer.

    That's a matter of opinion. Sure, he's better than DJ defensively but I'd much rather have DJ run my offense.

    I'd much rather have Paul George and Lance run my offense over any back-up PG.

    I have a feeling if we still only had DJ and Ben Hill would be playing.

    He's not out for certain yet.... if he doesn't play don't like that he is taking time off already... Every game is important this year for the Pacers

    Although I wish that we'd have Lance run the point and bumping OJ or Copeland into the rotation.....I expect to see some Donald Sloan running backup PG minutes.

    Interesting to see how Sloan does against his old Team.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    I would do the same thing. Start Lance, OJ, PG, West, Hibs if Hill is out. Let Lance run the offense

    I think it's more important to make sure he doesn't have nagging injuries carry into the postseason.
